Natalie Brooks: Mystery at Hillcrest High
Wow, what a FUN game!
Why aren't there more games like this one? I like this older style of game play!
The puzzles were fun, some were challenging. The graphics were good, but some parts could have been better.
I haven't played the other NB games yet, hopefully they are as fun as this one! It is a bit on the short side, but the enjoyment of playing makes up for it.
It's a really fun adventure from beginning to end!

some times it gets challenging, but that's where the fun comes from.

Among the three NB series, this one is probably the most well developed in terms of story and interface. It's probably the very beginning of Alawar success of HOG games. This game is combination of HOG and adventure and it was quite fun. Skip and hint button are quite useful. The game length is fine, but the chapters seem to get shorter and shorter as it progresses. I think I finished the game in less than 3 hours. The last chapter took about 5 minutes. I don't recall Alawar makes another game in the series but I think 3 in NB series is enough. Time to move on and glad that I bought this game!

INTERESTING STORYLINE IS THE BEST PART
Strange: a high school friend sends a letter to Natalie to meet him at an art gallery, then doesn't recognize her or even get her name right? What's going on? Suddenly, he's kidnapped.
Gameplay is rather simplistic - walks you through what you have to do - find this, then find that, and now you finally have the parts to open a door. Hints on what to do (such as "what if I rehang pictures that were taken down") are also given. Seems to be little challenge other than finding sometimes small objects in a large and crowded environment for a puzzle. HOS are also really crowded and objects are a bit hard to find if not brightly colored. An intermediate or expert HOG player would find the game much too easy, but might buy it just to find out what happened to Chad and why.
